Grace Family Reformed Baptist Church is a church plant that will begin January 2017, with the vision to be "A Kingdom Minded, Christ Exalting, Multi-generational community of faith." ​

We are members of the Alpine Association who are a leg of the Southern Baptist Convention, GFRBC practices a congregational form of Government. This means that there is no higher authority other than Christ giving oversight to this church.

In this local congregation, GFRBC has a plurality of elders that lead and provide spiritual oversight to its members. GFRBC is committed to functioning with a plurality of elders. The term elder is synonymous with the term pastor. However, pastor refers to the function (imperative), while elder refers to the office (indicative). While some churches have elders who function as administrators and pastors who function as ministers, every elder at GFRBC is a pastor, but not all elders will function as the normal preaching pastor. Our current elders are Sheldon Andreas and Geoff Heidebrecht, and pastor candidate Dennis Murengi.

Theologically, GFRBC is a reformed church holding to the 5 Solas of the reformation: Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone,) Sola Fide (Faith alone,) Sola Gratia (Grace Alone,) Solus Christus (Christ Alone,) Soli Deo Gloria (to the Glory of God alone.) Our primary confession of faith is the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.

This church also operates with a Family Integrated model (visit our website for more info). This means that our families worship together and we do not have any systematic age segregation.
